Electronic Medical Records : A Practical Guide for Primary Care
Books do not grow quickly. They have a gestation period that is rivaled only by elephants and blue whales. Nor do books develop in a vacuum; they are influenced by their environment and are often facilitated by the discussions, support, and input of others. I feel fortunate to work in an environment filled with colleagues who over the years have also become close friends – Mat Clark, Amy Clouse, Trip Hansen, Pam Fenstemacher, and John Russell – where we help, criticize, compliment, joke, challenge, and ultimately support one other in a way that characterizes and role models for our residents the best aspects of a healthy work environment. This is why, for over 20 years, we continue to have one of the best family medicine residency programs in the region, perhaps in the country, combining core clinical medicine with strong academics and training individuals who go on to become some of the best family doctors in our tri-state area. A program like this, that sees patients from all backgrounds regardless of their ability to pay in an environment of support and respect, can only occur when supported strongly by a parent hospital and the people in charge of that hospital – Jack Kelly, Meg McGoldrick, and now Larry Merlis – individuals committed to doing the right thing for the patients in our community, and Keith Sweigart who led the Abington Memorial Hospital search and launch of an electronic health record.
No plant, no person, and no book grows to its best and fullest without the love and support of family. I save the most important acknowledgements for last, because my last thoughts each day and my first thoughts each morning are about my family
– always living I’ve slowly only noticed the most important things in life – my wife Alison, who I love and with whom I travel together down this wonderful, confusing, cascading river of life; my daughter Ava – who is a delight and whose singing I hear even in my sleep; and my son, Aaron – with whom I have shared the greatest fishing adventures of a lifetime.
